Cristiano Ronaldo has firmly quashed any suggestions that he could return to Manchester United by insisting that he is happy to end his career at Real Madrid.
The 28 year old emerged as one of the world's best players during a six-year stay at Old Trafford that saw him win eight major trophies, including three Premier League titles and the Champions League crown.
Since moving to Real Madrid he has reached even greater personal heights, scoring a staggering 225 goals in just 216 games and helping Portugal to qualify for the World Cup with a stunning hat-trick against Sweden.
His remarkable achievements have made him the favourite to win the Ballon d'Or but have also led to reports that the likes of United and Paris Saint-Germain will attempt to lure him away from the Bernabeu.
But Ronaldo, who recently extended his contract with Real Madrid until the summer of 2018, has dismissed talk of a return to United and stated that he would be happy to end his career in the Spanish capital.
"I do not like to think much about the future," Ronaldo told Cadena COPE. "I like to think of the present. When you are motivated and want to do well, the future is not important.
"But it is true that at this time the feeling is that I want to finish my career here. I feel good, I like living in Madrid, I like to play in the best club in the world and I can not ask for more."
Ronaldo will hope that if he remains with Real Madrid he will be able to achieve similar success to that which came with Manchester United.
Despite his wonderful individual achievements the Spanish giants have won just won league title since Ronaldo joined in the summer of 2009 and once again look like they will struggle to overhaul rivals Barcelona who are already six points clear of Madrid.
